Pathe UK have shared a new trailer for Stephen Frears’s The Lost King, starring Sally Hawkins. The film opens in cinemas October 7, 2022.
In 2012, having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa Langley, whose unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with scepticism by experts and academics. The Lost King is the life-affirming true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country’s most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial kings in England’s history.
The Lost King also stars Harry Lloyd (Arcane), James Fleet (Operation Mincemeat), Jessica Hardwick (Float), and Steve Coogan (The Trip), who wrote the film with Jeff Pope (Stan & Ollie).
